2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black with white head. Aroma is harsh metallic hops with roasty chocolate and caramel hints. Flavour is overwhelmed by the poor hops which buries the more robust flavours which Guinness is known for. Do yourself a favour fellow Aussies, steer clear of the extra stout and go for the "draught" version in the can

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very big taste, bitter sourness due to the amount of iron from what I hear, on tap in Dublin it comes out like toast and milk

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown in colour with a persistant mocha foam. Light malty aromas show through a hint of yeastyness. The flavour rich malt and quite an estery dry finish....

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours jet black with a light tan head. Taste is very metallic and masks the chocolate and coffee flavours. The hops are not balanced. Little aroma present. A drinkable stout, but not a memorable one.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2011 Pored from a 750ml bottle, for such a big name Iím sorely disappointed, i hope it tastes better on tap. Not much of an aroma, i could pick up a bit of roast though. quite dry in the mouth, roast, toffee and a slight red wine flavour. Slight bitter finish.

Could not believe how poorly Guinness has travelled to Oz. The hop balance is off, leaving a sharp metallic taste with none of the substance I expect as a devout Guinness fan. Comparing this version to the tap versions found in Dublin means ratings suffer terribly, sadly. At least much of the warming appearance remains.

Wow, feel like writing to the irish embassy to complain about just how bad and far removed this is from the Guinness at home. So rare in my life I have been unable to finish a beer due to It being so crappy. The hoppiness is all wrong, metallic, horrible. Tastes like licking a chernobilese window after an easterly wind

This is something I have when Iím out and about or if I want my fix on Guinness and Iím not willing to go out to a pub and get it on tap. Not as good as it is on tap but itís still jizz worthy.
